The problem happens up North quite often when the wiper blades freeze to the windshield and we power them up. There is a considerable amount of torque on the shaft / arm joint.
Some systems do use a friction coupling, just a snug joint between the arm and shaft. should this be the case Do Not Over Tighten. That can damage the drive shaft.

Just to add to Rich's answer. On all of my vehicles I have made a habit of turning off the wipers when I stop the engine. This way I don't have then trying to come on when the windshield is frozen or the windshield is dry. Just one of my quirks.
